      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  3. Hi, iv got a 97 Ford escort calypso cabriolet, I don't use it very much and notice it's pretty tapperty to start with and gets better the more I drive it, is this normal, it's a zetec engine. Iv just used it today and it sounded very tapperty to start with ( I had not used it for 2 Weeks prior to day) but after a few miles and the engine warmed up it sounds fine. Is this pretty normal thing for these old escorts. I do notice the more I use it I don't get this issue so much. many thanks matt
  4. Iv got a very worn ignition key for a 1997 Ford escort, it does start car and lock doors but I would like to know if it's possible to get a replacement key. I only have this key with car and no spares. thanks
  5. Hi all, just interested in people's thoughts on the 3 door escort 1996 1997 models, I prefer the 3 door look but they seem very hard to find now. Do you think they will be going up in value over next few years. thanks
  6. Escort si

    Hi all, should a 97 escort si have any si badges on, Iv seen one today but it has no reference to being an si model apart from a 16v On boot, I thought the si badges should be on wings, can you get replacement si badges if they should be on car. many thanks
